Baggage: As general rule when packing for wilderness expeditions keep personal gear to a
minimum. Please avoid large framed suitcase as they can be rather cumbersome to
porters but use a medium size duffle bag instead. The weight limit on domestic
airlines is 20 Kg and only 2 check-in bags and one carry on bag are allowed.
Excess baggage will be charged at up to US$ 5 per Kg. Your day pack should be a
medium volume without a frame which can hold your personal belonging such as
medication, camera, extra clothes, water etc.
Clothing: Should be lightweight, dry quickly, and provide insulation even when wet. The
brushed nylon pants are ideal for trekking. Lightweight long sleeved shirt is
useful as sunscreen while trekking. A good quality raincoat and pants are ideal
as they will keep you warm and dry in a variety of situations.
Foot ware: Lightweight hiking boots or good quality running shoes will be ideal for the
lowland trek. It is essential your walking boots be comfortable and broken-in.
Personal items: Please bring personal item such as flashlight or headlamp with spare batteries.
A pocketknife, reading and writing material and personal first aid kit would
also be essential for your convenience.
Protection against insect bite: Most part the jungle is free from biting insects, but we do encounter them in
the low land such as sand flies around the river banks and leaches in the
lowland bushes. It's important to use insect repellent to keep the insects away.
